Global Ocean Freight / Delay, Breach of Contract
GOF picked up our goods from Des Moines Iowa in July 2008 for delivery to Cochabamba Bolivia. Numerous delays, excuses until finally the freight started movement a couple of months ago. Today we heard that GOF was going out of business just as our goods are about to reach Arica Chile, the nearest port. The freight forwarder for Arica to Cochabamba called to say that WE are now responsible for landing and transport from Arica even though we had prepaid the entire amount.
